Nonsense :)

Slightly got hyper and started thinking about 'Nonsense', which I feel is a beautiful thing! It takes a lot to be nonsensical! :).I swear!.My notion is - it's easy to call/term somebody a nonsense,and its easy to make sense, but it is difficult to make No Sense!! Oh, it's definitely a TALENT.

Chanced upon a few nice quotes on nonsense. That gave me a sense of relief. :)

“It is completely unimportant. That is why it is so interesting!”
“Nonsense is so good only because common sense is so limited”
“A little nonsense, now and then, is relished by the wisest men”
“Nonsense is an assertion of man's spiritual freedom in spite of all the oppressions of circumstance”
Here comes the best of the lot -
“Totally mad. Utter nonsense. But we'll do it because it's brilliant nonsense.”
From DA's stable!

I chanced upon lots of interesting stuffs on nonsense.This was a beautiful example - "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously" , well, the words considered individually make sense, and even the sentence is grammatically correct, but its utter nonsense. Don't forget to visit the results of the translation competition of the statement.
There's one more - Two hands clap and there is a sound; what is the sound of one hand? This statement is called a koan.Koan does not mean nonsense in its truest sense, but more like beyond the comprehending abilities of a mortal.

Adding more of nonsense. Got a poem generated on this,on the lines of Vogon.

See, see the great sky
Marvel at its big fuschia depths.
Tell me, chick do you
Wonder why the cat ignores you?
Why its foobly stare
makes you feel refreshing.
I can tell you, it is
Worried by your portmanteau facial growth
That looks like
A yoghurt.
What's more, it knows
Your bloody potting shed
Smells of frog.
Everything under the big great sky
Asks why, why do you even bother?
You only charm fishs.

I can hear you saying, NONSENSE.And I know you made total sense while saying that.

Was just browsing about logos and stumbled upon the concept of subvertising.The word,is a portmanteau of 'subvert'(meaning sabotage) and 'advertising'.
Check out the sample image that was given for subvertising -
